DAVID GREENLY enlisted before be was quite eighteen at Philadelphia, 
Pennsylvania, under Captain Barker, and fought the British at Fort Pike on 
Lake Superior, and was also in the battle of Five Points on the river Thames. 
He was one of twelve men detailed to shoot the Indian chief, Tecumseh. Once, 
while at Fort Pike, he was ordered by Captain Barker to spike a gun and while 
in the act a French Canadian struck him over the right eye with a flint lock 
gun, the hammer tearing the flesh for three inches over the eye. The Captain 
witnessed the affair and shot the French Canadian through the head with a 
horse pistol, killing him instantly. There had been a number of pickets shot 
on the southern post, which was near a long strip of woods skirting the camp. 
It came the turn of a married man, father of five children, to go on this post. 
He offered five pounds to any man who would take his place. David accepted 
the offer, with the understanding that he could take a spade along. When 
asked what he wanted with the spade, he replied, "To dig my grave." He 
was young and a favorite, so Captain Barker tried to persuade him not to go. 
When he arrived at the post he told the picket to report all well, and he 
proceeded to dig a hole near an old tree that was broken off about six feet 
above the ground, and got into the hole. Inside of thirty minutes he heard the 
rustle of leaves, and saw what he supposed was a big hog, but at last it raised 
up about half way and he saw it was an Indian, so he shot at it. At the report 
of the gun, the Captain came out and not seeing him cried "Dave is killed." 
David then spoke and told the Captain that he had killed an Indian, and they 
proceeded to the spot where they had seen the Indian fall. He made an at- 
tempt to scalp the Indian, but he was not yet dead and would have killed 
David had not the Captain intervened. After his return from the war he 
learned the trade of mill-wright, which he followed for a number of years. His 
mother having died when he was a baby, he was brought up by his uncle John 
Purden, who at his death left him nearly all of his property. 

On May 13, 1817, David Greenly gives receipt to Jacob Biddle and John 
Adams "my former guardians," for $2,931.50, and interest due $78.65. [Deed 
Book R 2, p. 254.] 

David Greenly, carpenter, of North west Fork Hundred. Sussex County and 
State of Delaware, sells October 10, 1821, to Jesse Green Esq. of same County 
and State for $500. part of a tract of land and willed to said Greenlee by his 
uncle John Purdon in Mispillon hundred. [Deed Book V 2, p. 42.]

ARCHIBALD GREENLEE, after the death of his mother, lived a year 
or so with a kind old neighbor, Isaac Cogle, a Quaker, who had been very 
kind to his mother during her sickness. Then he lived with a Scotchman, 
Samuel Clark until the latter sold his farm and moved to Indiana. Archibald 
had his clothing packed to go with Mr. Clark but his uncle, James Greenlee, 
would not allow him to go. He then went to live with William Workman and 
remained with him until he was fourteen years old, then went to St. Clairs- 
rille and became an apprentice to learn the cabinet-making trade. He re- 
mained there six years, and after finishing his trade he went to Wheeling, West 
Virpinia and did journey work for four months. His brother William had 
moved to Washington, Guernsey County, Ohio, and started a hat shop so Archi- 
bald went there and united with him in carrying on that trade. Having re- 
ceived some money from his father's estate, he built, a brick dwelling in which 
his brother lived, he boarding with him. They then bought a dry goods store 
and continued both that and the hat shop for some time, until it was thought 
best to dissolve partnership. William took the house and lot and Archibald 
took the store. He had, however, prior to this time, started a hat shop 
in Norwich, Muskingum County, Ohio, in connection with his cousin Andrew

Greenlee. After renting for some time they built a shop of their own. They 
afterwards sold out and moved to West Carlisle, Coshocton County, where they 
started a hat shop and a cabinet shop and continued them for a couple of years 
He built a shop and two houses there, having sold one to his brother Robert. 

After his marriage, his wife's friends living near Fredericktown, he was 
induced to move there in November, 1833, and resided there until his death, 
with the exception of one year spent in Mount Vernon, Ohio. In the spring of 
1834 he built a house and shop on the same lot and there carried on the furni- 
ture and undertaking business. In 1852 he removed to Mount Vernon, but 
remained there only one year and then returned to Fredericktown. Soon after 
becoming a resident of Fredericktown he was elected an elder in the Presby- 
terian Church, and held that office for over forty years. He frequently repre- 
sented the church in the Presbytery and Synod, and in 1872 he was chosen 
Commissioner to the General Assembly which met in Detroit. He was elected 
Justice of the Peace, in which office he continued for a great many years; and 
he was also Mayor of the village for a long time. After retiring from these 
offices he was made Notary Public, and continued as such until he retired to 
private life. In politics he was a Republican. He was appointed by the Synod 
of Ohio as a member of the Committee to locate the University of Wooster. He 
was also appointed on the first board of directors for the construction of tne 
Baltimore & Ohio Railroad from Mansfield to Newark. During the war of the 
Rebellion, he was a member of the Knox County Committee to raise soldiers. 
At the call of Governor Todd, he raised a company of citizens known as the 
"Squirrel Hunters" to defend Cincinnati, of which company he was elected 
captain. They proceeded to Cincinnati, also Harrison's landing, seven miles 
below that city, where they camped for a couple of days and were then dis- 
charged, the danger having passed. 

His courteous manner, kind speech, and adherence to principle gained for 
him many friends.

opportunities afforded by a limited subscription school. By industrious ap- 
plication to study at home, with the little help he received in the subscription 
schools, he acquired a good common school education. After his marriage he 
settled on a farm and followed farming, boating, and trading on the Ohio 
River until the spring of 1850, when he removed to Jefferson County, Iowa, and 
in 1852 moved to Wayne County, Iowa, where he settled on a tract of wild land 
five miles west of Corydon, the county seat. He immediately went to work 
to improve his farm, with the intention of making it his permanent home. By 
industry and strict economy he prospered financially and soon had his farm 
well improved and well stocked. In 1879 he left the farm and moved to 
Promise City, Iowa, where he engaged in the grocery business, and where he 
resided until his death. Mr. Greenlee has always had the confidence and esteem 
of those who knew him ; and, although never aspiring to office, he was elected 
Justice of the Peace in Wayne County, and served as such for eight years. He 
also served one year as a member of the board of Supervisors, and several 
terms as school director. For several years he was church clerk of Peoria 
Baptist Church. 

ESTHER HETTA (BARNETT) GREENLEE united with the Peoria Baptist 
church in 1854, and from that time until the day of her death lived a consistent 
christian life.

DESCENDANTS OF JAMES GREENLEE 
OP

married in 1736 at Carlisle, Pennsylvania, MARY ELIZABETH McDOWELL

JAMES GREENLEE came from the north of Ireland with Ephraim Mc- 
Dowell and family, about 1727-29. The} 1 landed in Delaware and went from 
there to Pennsylvania. John Lewis, a relative of Ephraim McDowell, had left 
Ireland some years before, and about 1732 settled on the Middle River in the 
Shenandoah Valley, in what was known as Beverly Manor, near the present 
town of Stanton, where he obtained patents for a large tract of land. Ephraim 
McDowell, with his sons John and James, and son-in-law James Greenlee, left 
Pennsylvania in the fall of 1737 to go to Lewis, near whom they intended to 
locate. The long journey was made with regular camp equipments. Tents were 
provided, numerous pack-horses, and each member of the family rode on 
horseback. While on their way, when in camp on Lewis' Creek, a tributary of 
the South River, they were joined one night by Benjamin Borden, Sr., who 
offered one thousand acres of land to any one who would conduct him to hi* 
grant. This offer was promptly accepted. The men conveyed their families to 

221 



222 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

the home of John Lewis, and then piloted Borden to what has since been known 
as "Borden's Grant," covering much of Augusta and Rockbridge counties. In 
consideration of a liberal share of the claim, the McDowells and James Greenlee 
then undertook to assist in carrying out Borden's contract for him, and before 
the close of the year moved their own families to the grant, where they per- 
manently settled, being the first white settlers in that part of the valley. Other 
settlers were induced to come from Pennsylvania to Borden's tract, among 
whom were many relatives of the McDowells. The country filled up rapidly. 
Good houses, schools and churches were built, roadways were constructed and 
bridges built. Settlers extended themselves over an immense tract of land 
beyond the limited range of Borden's tract, wherever the country promised 
unusual advantages of soil, or near the James River and its tributaries. Game 
abounded and the rivers were full of fish. The country was beautiful, climate 
pleasant and all localities healthy. Constant intercouse was kept up with the 
old colonies of Maryland and Pennsylvania, and the capital of Virginia, 
Williamsburg. 

MART E. McDOWELL was a true Scotch woman, though born in the North 
of Ireland. She emigrated to America with her father, brothers John and 
James, and sister Margaretta who married Mr. Mitchel in Pennsylvania and 
settled in South Carolina. Soon after her marriage to James Greenlee the 
memorable journey was made from Carlisle, Pennsylvania to Virginia. She 
was brave, loved adventure and was undismayed by the thought of Indians or 
wild animals with which the country was then infested. In the summer of 1757 
James Greenlee left his wife with a young family around her and went to Perm- - 
sylvania on a business trip. He was taken suddenly ill and died there at the 
home of Mr. Femme. or Fane. After the death of her husband she brought up 
her children under the watchful eye of her father, until he died. She then re- 
moved from Timber Ridge in the lower part of Rockbridge County to James 
River. James Greenlee had owned immense tracts of land on James River and 
in North Carolina. She increased her fortune rapidly and was able to set up her 
sons and daughters handsomely in life when they married, retaining a handsome 
estate for herself. 

She was remarkably handsome in youth and retained her activity, veracity 
and great wit to the last days of her life. The stories that are told of her son 
Samuel's wit and recklessness are remarkable. The "witch story" may be 
traced to his love of the marvellous almost entirely. Mrs. Greenlee told the 
stories first herself, and once in the hands of her reckless son. from his very 
boyhood days, they were scattered over the land with many additions. For 
instance, he told a party of Methodist ministers that his mother had been tried 
and condemned to be burnt as a "witch," and that she was tied to a stake 
and wood and straw piled around her, when lo ! she disappeared and a black 
cat was found in her place. The ministers stared and Samuel ran to his mother 
and told her how he had frightened off a party of "long faces" and "black 
coats" who were on their way to be entertained at her house.' The mother only 
laughed at the reckless boy and said "My son. O. my son ! do you not know that 
it is a sin to tell a lie*" Mrs. Greenlee told the story of her father having been 
called a wizard by the ignorant and superstitious, by reason of his strength of 



JAMES OF VIRGINIA. 223 

intellect and great physical endurance, and finally his extreme old age. When 
she was getting along in years, she concluded she needed glasses and accordingly 
procured a pair and thought that it improved her sight. The mischievous 
Samuel took the glasses out of the frame, had his mother put them on, then 
asked her if she could see better. "Yes," she said, "as well as ever." 
"Mother!" he cried, "there are no glasses in the frame." "You bad boy" she 
said, and throwing them aside did not use them for years. 

She charitable, hospitable and remarkably kind to and considerate of her 
slaves, whom she held in large numbers. She taught them to read and, in many 
instances, to write. She lived on James River and in the later years of her life 
her negro men were famous boatmen from a point on the river called the 
"Boatyard" to Lynchburg, thence to Richmond. They were proverbial for 
honesty and uprightness in every sense of the word. They were trusted with 
valuable cargoes for which they received the money and delivered it to the 
owners of said cargoes without trouble or question on the part of any who 
trusted cargoes with them. 

She lived to be very old, giving to the last an active supervision to business, 
in which she was thrifty and prosperous, and riding all over the country side 
on horseback. Her strength of mind rivalled her physical endurance. Long 
after the early settlers of her generation had passed away, and litigations arose 
among their descendants over lands claimed, she would ride miles on horseback 
to appear as a witness to settle the claims. Such was her knowledge of the early 
settlers and the land they settled on, and such was the accuracy of her memory, 
that her testimony invariably decided the ease in favor of the rightful owner. 
She was the first white woman who settled on Borden's Grant. 

[From History of Augusta County, Virginia, by J. L. Peyton] 

In the Burden case, Mrs. Greenlee underwent, in 1806, a long examination, 
testing her temper and memory. In the midst of her examination the question 
was put to her, "How old are you?" She tartly replied, "Ninety-five the 17th 
of this instant: and why do you ask me my age? Do you think I am in my 
dotage?" Her deposition which follows, cannot fail to be read with interest. 
It casts some light upon her early days, supplies valuable information as to the 
early settlers, their manners and customs, and has not inaptly been styled the 
corner-stone of our history. 



DEPOSITION OF MRS. GREENLEE 

Taken November 10, 1806, in the Suit of Joseph Burden, Plaintiff, vs. Alex. 

Cueton and Others, Defendants. 

Mrs. Greenlee, being sworn, deposeth and saith :

Ephraim McDowell, then a very aged man, and her brother John McDowell,

before, gone into said Manor and raised a crop of corn on South River, about 
Turks, near what she called Wood's Gap. That about the time they were strik- 
ing up their camp in the evening, Benj. Burden, the elder, came to their camp 
and proposed staying all night. In the course of conversation, said Burden 
informed them that he had about 10,000 acres of land on the waters of the James 
River, or the forks, if he could ever find it, and proposed giving 1,000 acres to 
any one who would conduct him to it. When a light was made he produced two 
papers, and satisfied the Company of his rights. The deponent's brother, John 
McDowell, then informed him, said Burden, that he would conduct him to the 
forks of James River for 1,000 acres ; showed said Burden his surveying instru- 
ments, etc., and finally it was agreed that said McDowell should conduct him to 
the grant, and she thinks a memorandum of the house of John Lewis, in Beverly 
Manor, near where Staunton now stands, who was a relation of Deponent's 
father. They remained with him a few days, and there, she understood, further 
writings were entered into, and it was finally agreed that they should all settle 
in Burden's tract. That said John McDowell was to have 1,000 acres for con- 
ducting them there, agreeable to the writing entered into, and that the settlers 
were, moreover, to have 100 acres for very cabin they should build, even if they 
built forty cabins, and that they might purchase any quantity adjoining at fifty 
shillings per hundred acres. The deponent understood that said Burden was in- 
terested in these cabin rights, as they were called, for that any cabin saved him 
1,000 acres of land. These cabin rights were afterward counted, as deponent 
understood, and an account returned to the government, then held at Williams- 
burg, and she has heard, about that time, many tests of the manner in which one 
person, by going from cabin to cabin, was counted, and stood for several 
settlements. 

She recollects, particularly, of hearing of a serving girl of one James Bell, 
named Millholen, who dressed herself in men's clothes and saved several cabin 
rights, perhaps five or six, calling herself Millhollen, but varying the Christian 
name. These conversations were current in that day. She knows nothing of the 
fact but from information. She understood that it was immaterial where the 
cabins were built ; that they were to entitle the builder to 100 acres as aforesaid, 
whenever he chose to lay it off, and that he had a right to purchase, at 50 
shillings as aforesaid, any larger quantity. One John Patterson was employed 
to count cabin rights, as she understood. He was accustomed to mark the letters 
on his hat with chalk as she had been informed, and afterwards deliver the 
account to her brother, John McDowell, and remembers to have heard that her 
brother had expressed his surprise at so many people by the name of Millhollen 
being settled on the land, but which was afterwards explained by the circum- 
stance of the servant girl above mentioned, and was a subject of general mirth 
in the settlement. She does not know whether this plan of saving several cabin 
rights by one person appearing at different cabins, was suggested by Burden, 
the elder, or not. She understood that every person saving a cabin right got 
160 acres for each right so saved, as he, Burden, was to have a cabin for every 
1,000 acres. When the party with which she traveled, as aforesaid, came, as 
they supposed, into the grant, they stopped at a spring, near where David Steele 
now lives, and struck their camp, her brother and said Burden having gone 



JAMES OP VIRGINIA 225 

down said branch until they were satisfied it was one of the waters of the James 
River. The balance of the party remained at that spring until her brother John 
and Burden, as she understood, went down to the forks formed by the waters 
of the South and North Rivers, and having taken a course through the country, 
returned to said camp. They then went on to the place called the Red House, 
where her brother John built a cabin and settled where James McDowell now 
lives. The first cabin her husband built was by a spring, near where Andrew 
Scott now lives, but when deponent went to see it, she did not like the situation, 
and they then built and settled at the place called Browns. They sold this after 
some short time, and purchased the land on which her brother, James, had made 
an improvement, now called Templetons, and where she resided until about the 
year 1780, being within sight of her father, .then near a hundred years of age, 
resided. This was the first party of white people that ever settled on the said 
grant. The said Burden, the elder, remained on the grant from that time, as 
well as she can recollect for perhaps two years and more, obtaining settlers, and 
she believes there were more than a hundred settlers before he left them. She 
believes he was in the grant the whole time from his first coming up until he 
left it before his death, but how long before his death he left it, she does not 
know. He resided sometime with a Mrs. Hunter, whose daughter afterwards 
married a Greene, and to whom, she understood, he gave the tract whereon 
they lived. When the said Burden left the grant, she understood he left his 
papers with John McDowell, to whose house a great many people resorted, as she 
understood, to see about lands, but what authority her brother had to selL or 
whether he made sales or not, she does not know. Her brother, John, was killed 
about Xmas before her son, Samuel, her first son of that name was born. He was 
born, as appears by the register of his birth in the Bible, about April, 1743. The 
date of this register is partly obliterated, in the last figure, but from the date of 
the birth of the preceeding and subsequent child it must have been, as she 
believes, in 1743, that said Samuel was born. 

Young Benjamin Burden came into the grant before her brother's death. 
She recollects this from the circumstance of his being then in ordinary plight, 
and such that he did not seem much respected by her brother's wife, and when 
she afterwards married him she could not but reflect on the change of circum- 
stances. She understood that he was altogether illiterate. She said, Benjamin, 
junior, lived with her brother John, whilst in the grant, but returned to his 
father '8 before the death of said John, and after his father's death returned, 
fully empowered by his father's will to complete titles and sell lands, and then 
married the widow of her said brother, and continued to live at the place where 
her said brother settled as aforesaid, until his death. This place, now called 
the Red Place, is about three quarters of a mile from Templeton's, where the 
deponent resided as above. 

Joseph Burden (a son of old Ben. Burden, the grantee), had resided at his 
brother, Benjamin's, some years before his, (Benjamin's) death; had gone to 
school and was here at his death ; had the small pox at about the time of her 
brother's death, and some time after (deponent does not recollect precisely, but 
believes it was not long) he went away, not being very well liked, as she under- 
stood and not made very welcome; was then but a lad of about 18 or 19, as well 
as she can recollect from his appearance. This deponent recollects that John 

16 



226 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

Hart, who had removed to Beverly Manor some short time before the removal 
of this deponent and her friend, as above stated, but she cannot say whether 
he surveyed for the said Benjamin or not ; she understood he was a surveyor. 
The people who first settled and purchased did not always have their lands 
surveyed at the time of purchase ; as she understood, some had their lands sur- 
veyed and some had not, but when it was not surveyed they described it by 
general boundaries. Beatty was the first surveyor that she knows who sur- 
veyed in the grant. The said Burden had been at Williamsburg, and some one, 
perhaps the Governor's son-in-law, by name Needier, and his other partners, had 
in a frolic given him their interest in said grant. She understood that there 
were four of them, the Governor, Gooch, his said son-in-law, and two others 
whose names she does not recollect, who were interested in the order of Council 
for said land, and that Burden got it from them as above; this was his infor- 
mation. She well recollects that her brother, John, assisted one Wood to make 
the survey of said large grant after they removed to it, as aforesaid, it being at 
the time of their removal, as aforesaid, held by the order of Council, as she 
understood. The said Woods and her brother made the survey she believes, 
after the cabin rights were taken in, as above stated. Many people came up, 
and many cabins and settlements were made immediately after their selling on 
the tract, as aforesaid. 

Being interrogated as to the value of the lands remaining unsold by Ben. 
Burden, she stated that one Harden, who, she understood, was an executor, and 
who was in this country after the death of young Ben. Burden (which occurred 
from small-pox in 1753), and after John Bowyer had married the widow, and. 
who, she understood, was settling Burden's business — but she does not know 
by what authority — she recollects that said Burden offered to her brother, 
James, the unsold land for a bottle of wine, if he would clear him of the quit 
rents. She also recollects that her brother consulted with her father about the 
proposition, who advised him to have nothing to do with it, for it would prob- 
ably run him into fail. This she thinks was shortly after Bowyer's marriage. 
She does not know whether Ben. Burden, Jr., was distressed on account of the 
quit rents or not, but recollects that shortly before his death, CoL Patton was at 
her house ; a horse of said Burden broke out and came there, which said Patten 
wished to have caught, that he might take him for some claim against Burden, 
but she did not hear what. She had, however, said horse sent home, fearing that, 
as there had been some misunderstanding between deponent's husband and said 
Burden about this land, he might think they had aided in said seizure. The 
deponent further states that her husband purchased 1,000 acres of land of old 
Burden, at an early day for fifty shillings per hundred, which she understood 
he had located on the Turkey Hill, as it was called. After the death of old 
Burden, his son, Benjamin, disputed giving a deed for the whole quantity there, 
alleging it was all valuable land, and afterwards for the sake of peace, it was 
agreed that a part should be taken there, a part adjoining Robert Cutton, which 
was sold to one Buchanan, and a part near John Davidson. This arrangement 
was made at the time Harden was present, as aforesaid, who seemed willing to 
give the land, and advised his deponent, whose husband was then abroad, to 
agree to take it at those places, which she did. All the land purchased by her 
husband was purchased from old Burden; indeed, he had purchased this 1,000 



JAMES OF VIRGINIA. 227 

acres before they came to the tract; at Lewis', as before stated, provided he 
liked the land when he saw it, which he did. 

The deponent being asked what she knew of the persons named in a muti- 
lated paper purporting to be an account of entries and sales, beginning at "No. 
1 — McDowell, Jno., to No. 22 — Moore, Andrew," on the first side, where the 
paper appears to be torn off; beginning on the other side at "No. 42 — Martin, 
Robert, and ending at No. 62, at Brown, Robt.," and whether those persons were 
settled in the grant at an early day or owned lands in itt 

Answered — That she knew a number of persons therein named, many of 
them lived in Beverly Manor, and others in the calf pasture and elsewhere, but 
she did not know many of them to have lands in Burden's tract. The Mc- 
Dowells and her husband she had before spoken of. She also knew John Moore 
who settled at an early date where Chas. Campbell now lives ; Andrew Moore 
who settled where his grandson, Wm. Moore now lives. Wm. McCausland also 
lived in the grant, as did Wm. Sawyers and Robert Campbell, Sam'l Woods, 
John Mathews, Richard Woods, John Hays, Chas. Hays, his son, Sam'l Walker, 
etc. all of whom settled in the grant at an early day. 

The deponent being interrogated if she knew Alex. Miller, and if he was an 
early settler t 

Answered — that she did not know said Miller. He was the first blacksmith 
that settled on the tract. She recollects of his shoeing old Burden's horse, and 
she understood he purchased land of said Burden. He lived on land adjoining 
one John McCroskey's land, who also purchased his land from old Burden. 
He also joined the plantation now Stewart's mill place, as she believes, whereon 
one Taylor, who, she believes, married Elizabeth Paxton, formerly lived. She 
recollects being at the burial of said Taylor, who was killed by the falling of a 
tree not long after his marriage. Said Miller's land, she understood, has been in 
possession of people by the name of Teeford since the said Miller removed. The 
deponent recollects one McMullen, who resided some distance above the place 
where Robt. Stewart's mill now stands, but up the same branch and near a 
spring. Said McMullen was living on said land and had a daughter married 
there when this deponent's daughter, Mary, was a sucking babe. She recollects 
this from having gone to the wedding when a daughter of said McMullen was 
married and having left her child at home. Her daughter, Mary, was born, as 
appears from the register of her birth, in May, 1745. Humphrey's cabins, as 
they were called, were over the hill, at another spring not far from where said 
McMullen lived. She knows not from whom McMullen purchased, but rather 
thinks her brother, James McDowell, gave him a piece of land there for teaching 
school. There was no mill where Stewart's mill now is in the lifetime of Ben. 
Burden, Jr. John Hay's mill was the first mill in the grant, and built very early 
after the settlement. 

The deponent says the people paid no quit rents for two years from the 
time the grant was first settled. She understood this exemption was granted by 
the Governor at the instance of one Anderson, a preacher. When they had to 
pay quit rents, they raised money by sending butter to New Castle, to Williams- 
burg, and other markets below, and got also in return their salt, iron, etc. 

Being asked whether Joseph Burden was frequently in this country after 
the death of young Ben. Burden, she answered that he was frequently in this 



228 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

country some time after the death of said Benjamin. He called at her house 
inquiring for a horse, and she thought she knew his name, and afterwards heard 
that he lodged in the neighborhood at one William Campbell's. She saw him 
again at her house about twelve or fifteen years ago. He made some inquiries 
of her about her husband 's estate or something of that kind. She does not recol- 
lect the particulars, but she had very little conversation with him. She also 
heard of his being through the country some time before this, but does not 
recollect how long, nor did she see him. 

Question by the defendant's agent — Did not many persons, from time to 
time, in the lifetime of old Burden, settle in the grant, under the expectation of 
getting the lands at their usual price, and without first contradicting with said 
Burden t 

Answer — I believe they did. I think many settled before they had an oppor- 
tunity of seeing Burden, and Burden would frequently direct them to deponent*! 
husband, to show them the land, as they said. 

Do you not believe that the first deeds were made for cabin rightst 
Answer — I suppose the cabin right, with such land as the settler purchased, 
would be deeded together, and perhaps these were the first made. 

Did Ben. Burden, Jr., appear, when he first entered on the affairs of the 
estate, to be disposed to do justice to the devisees! 

Answer — I thought he did. He appeared to be a good man. She understood 
he was heir-at-law and did not hear of the sister's claims, except to five thous- 
and acres, which she understood had been assigned to them on Catawba, where 
the land was good. 

Did he ever leave his country and go to Jersey, after he came up and got 
married t 

Answer — No, I believe he did not. I am pretty confident he did not. 
Did you know of Archibald Alexander and Magdalen Bowyer selling lands T 
Answer — I did not know they were executors, and had a right to selL I 
understood John Bowyer sold a great deal and gave away a great deaL Alex- 
ander was as respectable a man as any I knew. Bowyer, she understood, claim 
that Ben. Burden claimed, though she had no conversation with him about this 
claim. 

Being asked whether Alexander paid Burden any money on account of the 
estate T 

Answered — She never heard that he had, and from her intimacy with the 

wife of said Bowyer, she believes she would have heard of it, had it taken place. 

Question by same — When Burden produced his right to the land, as you have 

stated, were you not satisfied, and did not the Company appear satisfied that the 

right was completely in himf 

Answer — Yes, the papers appeared perfectly satisfactory. 
Did you not understand that your brother, James McDowell, built a cabin 
and purchased the land where Thos. Taylor, above mentioned residesf 

Answer — My brother, James, purchased a considerable tract, perhaps four or 
five hundred acres, either at or where Stewart's mill now stands. It run, as she 
understood, on a large hill, but whether in one or two tracts she does not know. 
This tract, she understood, he sold to some person, but does not know who to. 
She does not know whether he had it surveyed or not, but suppose it was merely 



JAMES OF VIRGINIA 229 

designated by general boundaries. She thinks if she was on the land, she could 
point out the tree whereon his name was cut, if it is yet standing. It stood near 
a deep hole in the creek. Knows not how he acquired and saved a cabin right, 
but never saw the cabin, nor does she know where it stood, but the land was 
called his very shortly after they went to the grant, and in the lifetime of old 
Burden.

had inherited from his father, and upon which he continued to reside for many 
years. The deed or grant of this estate was signed by King George and the land 
had never been transferred until the sale of the farm for division among the 
heirs of his son James. He was the high sheriff of Rockbridge Comity under 
the Colonial government in the reign of King George III, and had to ride one 
hundred and eighty miles to Richmond, Virginia to make his report and pay the

JAMES GREENLEE came to Surrey County, North Carolina from Virginia, 
before the Revolutionary war. He bought a fine farm on the Dan River but sold 
it again and went to Morganton, Burke County. He owned all the best lands 
about Morganton. His possessions are now divided into more than half a 
dozen fine farms. Besides this he owned lands in Yancey, Mitchell and Ruther- 
ford counties, and two fine farms in Turkey Cove; also land on the Catawba 
River where his son David Washington settled, is now divided into five good 
farms. He also owned fine lands near Memphis, Tennessee. He was a cattle 
raiser and the Catawba bottoms were green with cane and the hollows were 
knee-deep in wild pea vines. He drove his fat cattle to Philadelphia and to 
Charleston, South Carolina, for sale. He owned a great many slaves. While he 
was absent from home during the Revolutionary war the tories robbed him of 
stock and grain, and took off a female servant, which was all the help Mrs.

Greenlee had on the place. While he was in camp, the Tories killed his stock, 
wasted his grain, and feasted on beef, mutton and honey. They heard that 
Colonel Campbell was coming and hurried off uncermoniously. The servant 
was secreted by a kind neighbor while the Tories were travelling several miles 
away, and was sent back. 

James Greenlee was a business man, public and private. He said he could 
never write a deed to convey land from him, but could write one to himself. He 
never sold land, but bought all the good land that he could. He settled his six 
sons on good farms, all of them within a day's ride from home. His six sons 
settled their own matters without any lawsuits. He was Land Inspector in 
North Carolina and Tennessee ; member of North Carolina Convention in 1788. 
In politics, he was a Whig ; in religion, Presbyterian.

JAMES GREENLEE lived on the farm which had been owned by his father 
and was patented by King George DH of England before the Revolutionary war. 
This farm contained eight hundred and fifty-five acres, located on the south side 
of James River, about two hundred miles from Richmond, at the mouth of 
Arnold's valley situated between two spurs of the Blue Ridge mountains. The 
farm was a very productive and valuable one, containing a great deal of river 
bottom. There was a public ferry there which is still maintained and known 
as Greenlees Ferry. The patent was parchment and remained in the family until 
the place was sold. Mr. Greenlee was fording the stream about a quarter of a 
mile below his residence, was riding one horse and leading another. The horse 
he was riding stumbled, and the one he was leading jerked back and pulled 
him off and he was drowned before assistance could reach him.

DAVID GREENLEE had little opportunity for gaining an education; yet 
through the use of his library and periodicals he was unusually well posted in 
history, geography, science and current events. He was noted /or his familarity 
with the sacred scriptures, being a veritable walking concordance. He was a 
Presbyterian; in politics, a Whig; resided at Clover Hill farm, Rockbridge 
County, Virginia. 

HANNAH GRIGSBY GREENLEE had just finished her education at Ann 
Smith Academy, Lexington, Virginia, when she was married. She knew little or 
nothing about household duties but applied herself with such energy thereto 
that she was soon mistress of every detail, and was a reference for all her 
neighbors. The sons inherited her love of adventure. 

ELISHA GRIGSBY GREENLEE, soon after he left home, joined a filibuster- 
ing expedition under Lopez, and went to Cuba to accomplish what the United 
States has recently done. He escaped to Tampa, Florida, on a little steamer, 
closely chased by a Spanish man-of-war. He had lost all his wardrobe. He 
worked his way by driving a wood wagon, then as a hand on the railroad, then 
as conductor, and in this way made enough money to get back to Rockbridge. 
After this he took a college and medical course, followed his profession a while, 
then merchandised in Lynchburg, Virginia. Then he went on board the 
Viseal to London, his mother thinking him in Lynchburg till she got a letter 
from him dated London. When the Rebellion broke out all of the boys hastened 
to the front. He joined the Second Kentucky regiment as surgeon, the other 
four joined the First Virginia Cavalry under Colonel J. E. B. Stuart. There 
was not a raid, however dangerous, nor a battle in which Stuart's cavalry was 
engaged, in which most of them did not participate. Elisha was captured at 
Fort Donaldson, and for two years was a prisoner at Fort Douglas, when he 
was exchanged. After the war he went to Mississippi. He was of bright and 
cheerful disposition and had fine conversational powers.

HENRIETTA JANE LEWIS (GREENLEE) BURNLEY was a native of 
Rockbridge County. She was possessed of excellent sense and uncommon reso- 
lution and self-reliance, very decided convictions of religious truth, positive 
and uncompromising opposition to all that was unseemly in its professors, and 
to the utmost of her opportunity and means liberal in her contributions toward 
the propagation of the truth as it is in Christ. Her married life was a happy 
one. She and her husband lived in singular unity of counsel and harmony of 
action for thirty-eight years until his death about six month previous to hen. 
It can truthfully be said that but few have lived in Albermarle County for 
better purpose, or have left more wholesome impress for good than this couple.

DAVID WASHINGTON GREENLEE was the owner of a large plantation 
along the Catawba river in McDowell and adjoining counties of North Carolina, 
beautifully situated and beautifully kept by a troop of stalwart slaves. He 
came to Greenlee, North Carolina about 1814 or 1815. Though fine timbers were 
on every side there were few sawmills. He hauled some of the lumber for his 
house twenty miles. Travel at that time was by stage and private carriage, and 
those who lived on public roads had to keep travellers. His house always had 
guests coming or going. The nearest markets were Charleston and Augusta, 
and twice a year wagons were sent to one place or the other for supplies. It was 
a three weeks trip. Indians were not troublesome then though they often came 
through in large numbers. Wild game was in abundance — deer, bear, turkey 
and squirrels — and it was easy to keep supplied with fresh meat. Mr. Greenlee 
was a Whig; in religion, Presbyterian. He is remembered by older people 
through the region as presenting the best type of the generous, chivalric, court- 
eous, olden time southern gentleman.

HANNAH McCLANAHAN (GREENLEE) DAVIDSON will be remembered 
as a model wife and mother, and as a woman of most lovely character. Her 
uniform cheerfulness, her kindness of heart and of manner, her patience, 
courage, fidelity to duty and other kindred virtues were recognized and ap- 
preciated by all who knew her. Her experience called for their exercise for 
she had known much sorrow. The mother of six sons, she saw them and her 
husband buried. Three of her sons lost their lives in battle for their country. 

JAMES DORMAN DAVIDSON completed his education at Washington 
College, and soon began the practice of law in connection with his uncle, General 
Charles P. Dorman. He rose rapidly in his profession, and for more than fifty 
years practiced with a zeal which amounted to enthusiasm, and with such 
diligence and ability as deserved and achieved great eminence and success. He 
was a warm friend of education, and as a member of the Board of Trustees of 
Washington and Lee University, as well as a private citizen, he always mani- 
fested great interest in this cause. As a man he was generous and kind, and 
charitable in word and deed, and he relieved the necessities of the poor with 
unstinted benevolence. 

GREENLEE DAVIDSON entered Washington College in September 1852 
and took the degree of M. A. in June, 1855. In 1S55-56 he was a law student 
at the University of Virginia, the study of which he completed at the "Lexing- 
ton Law School" under the tuition of Judge John W. Brokenbrough, in June, 
1857. He at once commenced the practice of his profession in connection with 
his father, whose practice was one of the largest in the upper Valley. To the 
duties of his profession proper, he united the labors of a Master in Chancery. 
The records of both the courts of Rockbridge abound with evidence of his in- 
dustry, fidelity and ability. At this period of his career the Civil war com- 
menced. In May, 1861, Governor John Letcher, who had known him from his 
childhood, tendered him the post of Aide-de-Camp with the rank of Lieutenant 

it 



242 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

Colonel of Cavalry, the duties of which office he discharged with zeal and 
ability, until February, 1862. Conscientiously impressed that it was his duty 
to go to the field, he, during the fall of 1861 and the winter of 1862, raised and 
equipped the "Letcher Light Artillery" of which he was elected Captain. In 
February, 1862, his resignation as Aide-de-Camp was reluctantly accepted by 
the governor, and he entered upon his career of active soldier life. Ilis battery 
was assigned to A. P. Hill's Division, Stonewall Jackson's Corps, and was first 
brought into action on Wednesday evening, the 26th of June, 1862, at 
Mechanicsville. This was the beginning of that great seven days' fight which 
culminated in Malvern Hill on the 2nd of July. From day to day he was en- 
gaged during that terrible conflict. It was, however, at Malvern Hill that hi» 
battery acted the most conspicuous part. His company was engaged at Cedar 
Mountain, Warrenton Springs, the second Manassas; participated in the en- 
suing Maryland campaign; was greatly distinguished at the capture of Harper's 
Ferry; under A. P. Hill was conspicuous in the contest at Boteter's Mill during 
the re-crossing of the Potomac; and on the 23rd of December, 1862, closed the 
service of that eventful year at the great battle of Fredericksburg. "With the 
exception of skirmishing along the lines, the Army of Northern Virginia had 
no serious engagement from the 23rd of December, 1862, until the 2nd of May, 
1863. The campaign opened with Chancellorsville, a name deeply engraved 
upon the memory of the people of the Valley, and especially of the citizens of 
Rockbridge. On the 2nd of May the Letcher Artillery was conspicuously en- 
gaged. The battle was renewed on the 3rd, and victory was virtually won. 
The artillery was ordered to the rear to re-supply its expended ammunition, and 
an infantry charge was ordered to complete the rout of the enemy. Captain 
Davidson, under the inspiration of a soldier's pride and forgetful of personal 
danger, leaving his wearied company resting in the rear, returned with the 
infantry charge to the fighting line, nis death wound was the result. 

FREDERICK DAVIDSON was educated at Washington College, and from 
there marched with the first contingent of troops that afterward formed the 
Stonewall Brigade. He fell at the first battle of Manassas. 

COLONEL CHARLES ANDREW DAVIDSON was educated at the Vir- 
ginia Military Institute, a graduate of the class of 1860. The beginning of 
hostilities found him pursuing his study of law at the University of Virginia, 
from which place he proceeded directly to the army. This prompt action was 
characteristic of the man as his after-life testified. He was commissioned by 
Governor Letcher a Lieutenant in the regular forces of Virginia, and assigned 
to the First Battalion, a command famed for bravery and hard fighting. He, 
with his troops were in the struggle from Manassas to Appomattox. As com- 
mander of the Irish Batallion in the Army of Northern Virginia, he was one of 
the immortal band that surrendered with Lee at Appomattox. 

He became eminent in his profession, and a leading citizen of Lexington. 
He was a member of the town council, a bank director, president of the old and^^ 
historic Franklin Society, a literary association second to none in membership 
and scholarly attainments in the Commonwealth, an honored member of the 
Masonic fraternity, a leader in the Alumni of the Virginia Military Institute, a

foremost representative of the community in public and social hospitality and 
withal liberal in charity and benevolence. 

WILLIAM WEAVER DAVIDSON volunteered in the Letcher Artillery 
when he was a mere lad. A severe attack of camp fever unfitted him for active 
service. At the close of the war he entered the Virginia Military Institute, but 
had to leave before he had completed his course, on account of ill health.

cotton then valued at one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. The Union 
troops camped on the premises and destroyed everything they could not carry 
away. The family was left in destitute circumstances, with nothing but the 
farm, and most of the fencing destroyed. Mr. Davis lived only a few years 
after the war. After his death the family had a difficult struggle as the children 
were small and could not be of much assistance for several years. In politics 
he was a Democrat; in religion, Presbyterian, then Methodist.

JAMES SAMUEL GREENLEE'S earliest recollection was of a fight he had 
with his teacher who whipped him for not studying his A B C's. He did not 
want to go to school, but wanted to learn a trade as his taste was for mechanics. 
However his mother was ambitious that the boys should become professional 
men, and designed James for a preacher, and her will was law. So he went to 
school under protest until about seventeen years of age, when he realized the 
error of his position and began to desire an education with a view to the minis- 
try. In 1858 he graduated from Washington College (now Washington Uni- 
versity), Lexington, Virginia. After teaching school for one year he entered 
the Theological Seminary at Prince Edward. In 1861, before the close of the 
session, he left the Seminary to enter the army, and served almost constantly 
until the surrender. Twiee his horse was shot from under him, and once a bul- 
let passed through his clothes. After the close of the war he returned to the 
Theological Seminary to complete his interrupted studies; but soon his depleted 
finances forced him to again leave the Seminary and engage in teaching, which 
occupation he followed in Virginia and Maryland until 1870, when he emigrated 
to Kansas, taking up a homestead in Marion County. In 1876 he removed to 
Stephens County, Texas, where he received an appointment as Deputy County 
Surveyor of Stephens County, which he held until October, 1S79, then removed 
to Trenton, Tennessee, ne afterward returned to Texas and settled in New 
Lebanon County. In 1SS3 he was licensed to preach by the presbytery in 



248 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

Temple, Texas, and until within the last few years has been teaching and 
preaching in different localities in Texas. He has since lived on a farm near 
Alvin, Texas. In politics, he was a Whig, then Democrat.

JAMES HERVEY GREENLEE spent his youthful days on his father's 
farm, with the exception of the time he was in school which was very irregular. 
His parents had a place near Morganton, then the county seat of Burke County, 
where they spent a portion of their time, and then he attended schooL When 
his parents went to their Turkey Cove farm he was left alone with the servants 
in order to pursue his studies. Thus he spent many weeks with not another 
white person around him, but he was always carefully watched over by the 
servants. It was finally concluded that he was too young to be left alone, so 
from then on his schooling suffered many interruptions. He afterward attended 
Washington College at Lexington, Virginia, where he remained fifteen months, 
then returned to his father's farm, which he managed for a share of the pro- 
ducts. After two years spent in this capacity, he was given a farm by his 
father, but continued to make his home with his parents as long as they lived. 
Having been reared in a grand old southern home noted for kindness and hos- 
pitality, where not only friends and relatives but also strangers received a 
welcome, he grew up with those ideas and principles, and when he established a 
home of his own the latch string was always out. 

In 1861 Mr. Greenlee was a delegate to the state convention that took North 
Carolina out of the Union. While he did not approve of this act, thinking that

JAMES OF VIRGINIA 249 

there might be a better plan, still when his state went that way he went with 

her and did his part to help prepare for the conflict. Of slaves and slavery ha 

had the following to say : "I had over thirty slaves — all good and f aithfuL I 

would often leave things in their charge and they took good care. Some could 

read and write a tolerably legible hand, and keep ordinary accounts. Some 

were members of the church, and I would gather them together on a Sabbath, 

read to them and instruct them about the future and their responsibility to 

their Maker. Some were impressed, others seemed unmoved. In this part of 

the country slaves were well treated, fed, and clothed. There was probably 

some rigid treatment where there were large numbers on a plantation, and 

where it required rigid treatment to keep all straight and in their places. I 

do not think emancipation has been such a boon for the colored race in this 

land. What would they have been in their native land — Africa? I never was a 

great advocate of slavery, but I believe that the question of slavery, if justice 

and righteousness had ruled, could have been more satisfactorily adjusted, 

without the loss of the thousands of precious lives and the millions of money." 

The following is a copy of a letter written to Mr. Greenlee while absent 

from home, by his chief slave: 

"Turkey Cove, March 24, 1865. 
Master — Sir : 

I will write you a few lines to let you know that we are all well at present, 
except George; he is complaining some since he came home. I started the 
wagon the 14th of this month with a load to you what I thought they could 
haul, but they broke down before they got to the river and then was water- 
bound, for several days and had to come home and started again last Monday 
from home and met George there. He went to Muddy Creek and came back 
and said that he was not well enough to take the wagon on and John went in 
his place, and Tag is working in John's place. I do not know what they 
hauled. I sent 53 pieces of bacon to Miss Sallie, weighed 900 lbs., 22 hams, 12 
shoulders, 13 midlings. I reckon John and Madison took what they thought 
they could get along with. Last Wednesday, the 22nd, the Tories came and 
paid us another visit, but as Providence would have it, they got nothing. They 
came at noon day. Jiff and Isaac were hauling some wood with the black mare 
and Jinny and I had borrowed Milford Huskins mule to haul with that day and 
had hauled a few loads; when they came we were loosing out to feed and they 
run to the stable and made Isaac take out the mare and mule and they mounted 
them with the gears on and took Isaac with them. Threw down the fence and 
went up through the new ground up Pinks Branch, but Captain Gilliam hap- 
pened to be at the old store with a few men when the alarm was made and they 
followed them and fired on them in the Tobacco patch. The Tories jumped off 
their horses let them and Isaac all go and cleared themselves. The same even- 
ing the same scamps went to Hallefield and took his mare out of the plough, 
then went to his father's and took his saddle and his boy's hat and went on. I 
did not see them at all. I was at the mill and saw the men run up from the 
store and I ran up to the house to see what was on foot. But the Tories were 
gone. They came in on the blind side of us. This time they came down the 
ridge to the shops. Liander and Carson were there at work at their wagon 



250 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

wheels and the first thing they knew were at the shops. Elijah Wacaster was 
in the crowd as guide for them through the mountains; some of them were 
there before. I do not know what we will do. We can't do nothing here for 
the Tories. If our horses had been at home they would have taken them all 
if those men had not been there. Capt. Carson has come back with some of 
his men, but they are in the North Cove and there is no man guarding in the 
Turkey Cove at all. I would be very glad if you would come home and see 
about things. K. C. Burgess was here some time ago and wanted to know the 
amount of pork we killed. Some person ought to come and take the tallig off 
the bacon before the Tories steal it. I do not know what we will do. I must 
close saying that you must do the best you can and we will do the same. All 
the black people send "howdy" at you and the children Charles, Emeline, Alvin 
and Mariah. Farewell, in haste, I remain as ever. 

WARWICK GREENLEE." 
Addressed to 

Mr. James H. Greenlee, 
Davidson College, N. C." 

The slaves were all very much attached to Mr. Greenlee and after they 
were free would always visit him when they came near. 

Mr. Greenlee was an elder in the Presbyterian church for sixty years, from 
August 30, 1845. He was one of the principal contributors in building and sup- 
porting Turkey Cove Church, organized May 30, 1886. He gave liberally of 
his means to all religious causes, both home and foreign. The furnishing of a 
room in the new Seminary at Richmond dedicated to his mother was among the 
last of his benefactions. 

Physically robust, he was more so mentally and when in congenial company 
was interesting and instructive in his conversation. He retained all his facul- 
ties and was only troubled during his last years by dulness of the sense of 
hearing, ne was blessed with wonderful eyesight and memory, was very 
studious and spent the greater part of his later life in reading. 

In the summer of 1904, he with his son and family took quite an extensive 
mountain trip, very tedious and rough, but he was in remarkable spirits and 
pronounced the affair one of the most enjoyable of all his life. He had plan- 
ned another for the following year and had engaged his drivers and cook. 

Although well read, interested and in touch with public matters he did not 
participate therein, other than in the capacity of a sturdy citizen. He was a 
very active man and always transacted his business in person. It was while 
he was on a trip to Johnson City to buy horses that he was stricken with 
paralysis, but he retained his mental faculties unclouded until a few hours 
before the end. He died in his 94th year at his Turkey Cove farm, within 
sight of the place where he first saw the light. 

There are two striking things to mark his character. First his determination 
to do right. If a thing seemed right in his mind it was marked for accomplish- 
ment and the whole force of his indomitable will and wonderful vitality was 
brought to bear upon it. The other was his deep reverence for God, for his 
house, his worship, his service. When he was too ill to make himself under- 
stood by those who watched him, he could be heard to utter one continual

example which appeals to all good men even in the rush and turmoil of modern 
progress. 

MARY JANE GREENLEE was received into the Presbyterian Church of 
Seloan, of which her parents were members, in September, 1846, and from that 
time until the day of her death she adorned the profession of the Gospel by her 
life.

Dr. Bacheman who directed his early education. He began the study of medi- 
cine in Charleston but ultimately spent a number of years in France and Ger- 
many under the tuition of the leading physicians of the day. Soon after his 
return he took charge of the Charleston Medical Journal and displayed such 
ability in conducting it that he became a high authority with doctors and 
especially with medical writers. A few years after his marriage he removed to 
Morganton, where he resided, with the exception of about two years, until his 
death. He nobly lost his life by going to the yellow fever suffereres at Vicks- 
burg, Mississippi in 1878.

JAMES McENTIRE GREENLEE was born at the old homestead, near the 
centre of what is now the village of Greenlee. While still a mere lad he was sent 
to con his Latin and Greek at Washington and Lee University, and soon" after 
leaving college he married pretty Anne Morris, a belle of Rutherford County. 
"Settling down" into the staid role of a gentleman farmer was a slow process. 
For the young couple life was chiefly a frolic, until the young wife died. Mr. 
Greenlee's second wife was Harriet Rice of East Charlemont, Massachusetts. A 
daughter of Puritans and of Mt. Holyoke College, she at first found it somewhat 
difficult to adapt herslf to surroundings in the South, whither she had been sent 
to nurse a sick mother, remaining afterward to teach in the Murphy neighbor- 
hood. The cloud of civil war was already upon the horizon, and her parents 
were much grieved that she should marry a slaveholder. However, when the 
storm burst she gave her support to the lost cause, though her brothers fought 
upon the other side. When the war closed Mr. Greenlee determined to mend his 
broken fortune in the gold fields of California. To go back to her old home 
among the abolitionists was a bitter draught for his wife, but was better than 
braving the horrors of reconstruction alone; so the four or five years of her 
husband's absence she spent in teaching in Massachusetts. It is related of her 
that she taught northern histories of the civil war with very lively note and 
comment. In her early life she had steadily contemplated life in foreign mission 
fields, but as she said she "found her work in the South." She and her two 
elder daughters were among the first southern gentlewoman to acept positions in 
the public schools. Such work had been considered menial by women of their 
social status, and the teachers hitherto employed had been greatly lacking in 
manners, morals and education. "These young Greenlees had to be taught," 
she was wont to say, as her children, with a troop of cousins, gathered about 
her, "and gradually I drifted into the other work." Her talent for teaching 
was inherited by her daughter, Harriet Eliza, who was founder of Greenlee 
School, bequeathed at her death to the Presbyterian Church. This daughter 
died in the prime of life, a sacrifice to the unsparing energy which prompted her 
to ceaseless efforts far beyond her strength.

THOMAS YOUNG GKEENLEE was a great hunter in his boyhood days. 
He often went upon the mountains with his dogs at daylight, drove a big buck 
into the river, killed him and was home with him in time for breakfast. He 
would tramp the woods all day shooting squirrels and kill as many as half a 
dozen little negroes could carry home. 

In 1844 McDowell County was separated from Burke and made a new county. 
Since that time he has had more or less to do with the county government and 
has held almost every office at one time or another. He served as county surveyor 
for thirty-three years and has surveyed the whole county, mountains and all. He 
has also surveyed a good deal of Burke, Yancey, Mitchell and Rutherford 
counties. He owned about seventy slaves — good and faithful servants all of 
them. Several have lived with him as renters for years. When the civil war 
broke out his oldest son came home from Davidson College and, with hie brother, 
who was only seventeen years old, joined the Confederate army. The second 
son was wounded at the battle of Seven Pines and was sent home for a while, 
then taken prisoner at Petersburg and lay in prison six months at Point Look- 
out. The eldest son, James Logan Greenlee, was wounded at the second battle

of Manassas. We give below some interesting letters written by him while in 
camp: 

Camp near Yorktown, Va., 

April 24, 1862,  
Dear Father : — 

I suppose that you begin to think that I have been very long about writing 
home. I know that you are all anxious to hear from us. John wrote to you by 
Merit Burgin from Richmond. Since I parted from you at the head of the road, 
I have seen much, traveled far and learned much. We did not reach our regi- 
ment till Monday, two weeks precisely from leaving Marion. We were detained 
in Salisbury until Saturday morning and would not have gotten away then 
but for an extra train going to Raleigh. There are at present about 1800 
Yankee prisoners in Salisbury. It was very amusing to hear the remarks of 
some of our boys about them, such as "Why they are just like our men," 
"They are as big men as we" and such like. It took us three days to get from 
Salisbury to Raleigh. The cars run off the track on Sunday but providentially 
no one was killed, though the cars were full of troops, and a good many were 
bruised up over the rocks and cross ties. Luckily for us, we were about midway 
the train and our car did not run off although all before it did. When I jumped 
out of the cars the men were scrambling over each other, and such a babel of 
cursing, groaning and laughing I never heard before. We staid one night in 
Raleigh sleeping in box cars on planks. I thought then that it was a very 
hard disagreeable bed, but I have since learned that it was quite a comfortable 
place. 

We left Flemming's Company in Raleigh. John has a first rate Company 
and will make a good Captain. We came from Raleigh to Richmond in one day, 
landing in Richmond in the night. We were inarched off to the quarters pre- 
pared for the Accommodation of Soldiers, the St. Charles Hotel, a large and 
capacious house (a perfect hog pen for filth and dirt) ; here we had excellent 
fare, prepaid for us, consisting of bacon, seemingly ten years old, and as strong 
as Sampson, bakers bread as porous as a sponge and peas scarcely fit to be 
given to swine, all these cooked by the ton and without washing. Those of us 
who had money boarded at the hotels and restaurants, while we staid in Rich- 
mond, which was three days and nights. Richmond is a very large city. It 
seems as if all the people in the Southern Confederacy had collected in this 
place. One may see thousands on the streets in a few hours. Nearly every man 
here is a soldier or pretends to be. For all there is so much to be seen in the 
Capital of our new-born confederacy; yet I never was so tired of any place in my 
life. Richmond is much larger than I had any idea of. It is the dirtiest place 
(with the exception of Petersburg), that I have ever been in; it is a perfect 
den of extortion. The citizens seem to think of nothing, nothing, and care for 
nothing but cheating the poor soldiers out of their wages ; with few exceptions 
they are worse enemies to their country than the Yankees. The authorities 
would not permit us to go on to our regiments, although several trains left Rich- 
- :m *^ r " mond daily for Fredericksburg empty. We thought strange of it then, but have 
since learned the cause of our detention. The troops were at the time falling 
back from the Rapahannock. The cause of this move I do not know but suppose 

IT 



258 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

that it seemed necessary in the wisdom of our Generals or it would not have been 
made. We left Richmond in the cars on Sunday and went to A s h land, 18 miles 
from Richmond. They halted us here and we staid all night in the stables. Our 
regiment landed about midnight and we joined them the next morning. Wo 
received marching orders that same evening and to prepare three days rations, 
but we did not march till Wednesday about one o'clock. We were not allowed 
to take anything but what we could carry on our backs. We all shouldered our 
muskets (leaving a guard and the sick in camp), and marched off for Richmond. 
We marched that night till about nine o'clock, then halted, rolled up in our 
blankets, lay down and slept soundly until 2y 2 o 'clock, when they roused us to 
continue our march. We struck out for Richmond through the mud. We got to 
Richmond at three o'clock, having left a good many of our men on the road. I 
was extremely tired when we arrived but not quite gave out. We met with 
Capt. Neal and his recruits and Bratcher Hemphill. The next morning our regi- 
ment was put on board a boat on the James River and struck down the river. 
I like steamboat traveling first rate, although I suppose it is not so pleasant rid- 
ing on the deck of a flat boat crowded with men and baggage, as it is in a good 
cabin. The scenery on James River is beautiful. The river is from two to three 
and four miles wide. We landed about 120 miles from Richmond, as soon as 
the stragglers could be collected, we struck out for Yorktown. This march 
headed everything I ever saw. We could get no water except out of ponds and 
puddles. We were tired out with fatigue and want of sleep. Men were falling 
out all along the road and lying down to sleep. Before we halted (which we did 
about an hour by sun in the Peninsular about two miles from Yorktown), more 
than 200 men were missing out of our regiment. I never was so tired and sleepy . 
in my life. When we halted to rest at daylight, I sat down on a log beside the 
road, placed my face in my hands and went to sleep, and slept so soundly that 
the noise of another regiment passing failed to wake me, and I did not know 
that it had passed until the next day. John stood the march first rate, better 
than I had expected, and slept all day. Sunday we were ordered to the in- 
trenchment two or three miles from our camp. This was the most miserable place 
I ever saw. It is in a swamp naturally wet, but at this time flooded with water. 
At night we had to keep two-thirds of the men up all the time. Sunday night 
an alarm was given and we all pitched into the ditches musket in hand. It was 
dark as Egypt; several volleys were fired into the darkness but the enemy did 
not advance. I did not fire as I had nothing to shoot at. Tuesday we returned 
to camps. We have not had any tents (except one night), since we left Ashland. 
Firing is constantly going on between our pickets and those of our enemy. A 
man or two is killed almost every day on each side. Our pickets are in sight of 
the ditches and the enemy are in sight of them. The boom of cannon is to be 
heard every few minutes of almost every day. It has become so common that the 
discharge of musketry, or the roar of the cannon is not noticed. 

I have run on writing until my paper has almost given out. John and I are 
both well at present and getting along first rate. We are getting used to camp 
life ; we left several of our boys at Ashland sick, but those who have come to us 
since say that they are all getting well. Dave Gibbs is in our mess; tell his 
folks that he and Charles are well. 

You must all write to us. Direct your letters to Richmond, in the care of

Camp near James River, 2 miles below Richmond, 

July 7, 1862. 
Dear Sister: — 

I received your letter some time since while the battles were going on. I 
have had very little time for writing before now. I wrote you a short letter 
from Richmond by David Gibbs. Since that time I saw the hardest times that I 
ever saw in my life. The most terrible fighting of the war has taken place since 
that time. I have been through every bit of it. I do not know how I have 
stood up to all the fatigue of this campaign, whilst the stoutest men have given 
way beneath it. I was determined to see it out as long as I could crawl, and the 
resolution kept me up. I suppose I have been in every battle and have come out 
unhurt. Providence must have watched over me and protected me whilst my 
friends were falling thick around. "We have whipped the Yankees, but our loss 
is heavy. Many of our best and bravest men are killed or wounded. 

We left our camp below Richmond on Wednesday the 28th of June and 
have been marching and fighting ever since until last Saturday night, when we 
arrived at the camp worn out and over-tired with fatigue and over-exertion. 
We are within range of the enemy's gunboats on James River, if they had a 
mind to shell us, but I suppose that they have work enough to do now in carry- 
ing their men and baggage out of danger. It has been a glorious victory for our 
country. MeClellan has been completely routed and his vast and fine army 
driven like sheep before us, with immense loss of baggage, provisions, arms, men 
and all the other munitions of war. Some say that they have 7000 Yankee pris- 
oners now in Richmond, with two Major Generals and four Brigadier Generals. 
The loss in our company is very heavy, and they are our best and bravest. I do 
not see, however, how in the world it is as small as it is. We did not have more 
than 25 men in our Company when we went into the first fight. The rest were 
either sick or detailed off on various duties. There is a list of the killed and 
wounded in the various fights. On Thursday, June 6th, killed, none ; wounded, 
George W. Lackey, leg broke by a shell below the knee, he will probably recover. 
A. B. Copeland, thigh broke by a shell ; I think he must die. Dick McFarland, in 
the hand and leg, not severely. Frank Condey, in the head, not severely. Rob- 
ert Right, in the shoulder, severe but not dangerous. On June 27th, killed, 
William Burgin Corp. Mortally wounded, George W. Burgin. Wounded: 
Robert McCoy, in the hip; not dangerous. Monday, June 20th, killed: Lark in 
A. Morris, Robert Duncan and David Lavender. Wounded : John Wood, in 
leg very slightly. Missing, supposed to be killed; Steven McKinney. Nearly 
half of the men that were with us were either killed or wounded. I could write 
a volume to you but have not time nor paper now. I wrote to David on Friday 
after the first two battles; tell him to write to me immediately and to keep that 
letter, as I may want to see it again, as it was written under fire of Yankees. 



2G0 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

I have escaped very well. One ball passed through my haversack, and a spent 
ball struck my leg, but did not hurt me any more than if I had been struck 
by a small rock. The bark frequently spattered into my face from tree* 
struck by balls. The men say I am too little to be hurt. I have seen Joe 
Neal and Marion Higgins, but have not seen John or Greenlee Fleming yet. 
They were in the battle on Tuesday. John was slightly wounded. Steve is well 
I heard by Joe Burgin. He came to me Sunday but cut out when the fight began 
Monday. Tell Uncle Jim to write to me. I am very anxious to hear from John. 
This is Yankee paper and a Yankee envelope. I enclose you an envelope and 
paper which I found in a Yankee letter that some man 's wife had sent him to 
write back on. Write at once to your brother. 

J. L. Greenlee. 

Camp near Richmond, July 19, 1862. 
Dear Father : — 

I promised in my letter to Becky to write you a full account of the late 
battles around here, so far as I was a participant in them. But first I will say 
that my health has been very bad since the battles, although I have not been off 
duty at any time. I have got the Yellow Jaundice now. It is the meanest, siek- 
enest disease I ever had in my life. It is impossible to describe one's feelings 
when they have it. Steve has been very sick for several days; he is getting a 
little better. 

On Tuesday, June 25th, we received orders to march at 5 o'clock P. M. The 
enemy seem to have determined to hurry us a little, so about the time we were 
ready to fall in, they commenced shelling. The shell would burst in the air over 
us and scatter the pieces everywhere; one struck a tree in our camp low down, 
and another bursted into the 16th Regt., which was camped just behind us, but 
happily did no harm. After 5 o'clock our Brigade took up the line of march. 
Our Brigade consists of 16th, 22nd, 34th and 38th Regts., N. C. troops, under 
command of General Pender. We marched that night until about nine o'clock, 
then encamped and remained there till 3 o'clock next evening, ready to fall in 
at any moment. Thursday about 3 o'clock in the evening we started, and 
crossed the Chickahomig on the Meadow bridge. The enemy had been driven 
away from this bridge on the evening before by a party of our men. As soon 
as we had crossed the creek we began to see evidences of the presence of the 
Yankees in the shape of cabins, tents, breastworks, blankets, &c. We crossed 
the bottom and when we reached the uplands, filed to the right through the 
fields. After we had gone near a half a mile the Yankees opened a battery on 
us with shell and round shot. We advanced under this fire to Mechanicsville 
without losing a man although many of the shell passed very close to us and 
kept the men dodging all the time. When we came to Mechanicsville we passed 
through by the right flank, then about faced and marched back through. Here 
were the first dead and wounded men that I saw. They had been killed by shell 
and belonged to another regiment. The houses were badly torn up and they were 
fixing them up as hospitals. Just after passing Mechanicsville a shell exploded 
in the Company just before ours and wounded four men. We had to step over 
them as we went on. The Yankees gradually withdrew their battery as we ad- 
vanced and added new guns, our artillery replied to them. We advanced until 



JAMES OF VIRGINIA 261 

we came to a deep wooded hollow ; in this there was a whole brigade lying own 
to shelter themselves from the cannon. We halted and lay down also, and now 
the cannonading was redoubled ; the balls, shell and grapeshot flew over us in a 
hurry, striking the trees and cutting off the limbs, but I did not see any men 
struck while we lay there. As we came out of this woods and were passing 
through a eorn field, the first man was wounded in our company ; it was George 
Lackey. He was my left hand man. A piece of shell struck his' leg and broke 
it in two. George is a good soldier and brave. There was no time for dodging 
now ; the shot was too thick. "When we came to the end of the woods we found 
a Virginia Begiment drawn up at the edge of the woods in a line of battle ; we 
formed just behind them. They then advanced into the woods and commenced 
firing. Presently here they came out in considerable confusion and began to 
form before us ; our Colonel called out to them to form behind us and let us go 
in. We advanced into a thicket, and a thicket it was; when we had gone a short 
distance (it was uphill and pretty steep), Copeland was wounded, he was struck 
by grapeshot and his thigh shattered all to pieces. I turned my head when I 
heard him cry out with pain and saw Lieut. Burgin catch him in his arms as 
he felL Lieut. Burgin was at this time in command of the Company. The Cap- 
tain was taken very sick that morning and we left him. Charlie ordered some 
one to take Copeland out. John Burgin and George immediately took hold of 
him. Copeland was directly behind me, and I do not see how the shot struck 
him and missed me. There was a Virginia Regiment in here ahead of us; they 
were firing to the front but the smoke was so thick that it was impossible to see 
anything. The balls and grape were coming in thick, shaving the leaves and 
striking the trees. But I think the enemy were a long way off, for the rifle balls 
were all nearly spent before reaching us. Frank Condry was struck hard 
enough in the month to make it bleed a little. The stragglers from the regiment 
ahead of us broke our line so in passing through that we had to fall back to the 
field and form again and then advance again — passed the Virginia Regiment 
and on down the hill through the thicket until we came to the edge of a meadow 
covered with tall grape ; here we halted for some time. Presently a tall young 
officer came up behind us and asked what regiment it was; severaL of us said 
"22 N. C." "Forward then in the name of God" said he, "The General says 
forward." Some of the men started, but the officers stopped them. He then 
rushed to the front, dashed into the swampy grape, waved his sword and 
shouted "Forward." Some of the men asked for the ColoneL Colonel Connor 
then came to the front and walked up to the stranger and said, "I command this 
regiment, Sir." The stranger bowed and said, "Very well, Sir, the Yankees 
are just over there in the woods, if I can be of any service to you I will do any- 
thing I can." The Colonel then drew his sword, turned to us and said "Come 
on, men." The meadow was about 75 yards wide; we plunged into the meadow 
in some places nearly knee-deep in mud and water; in a few steps we fell in a 
ditch ; the front men scrambled out and those behind jumped over, and on we 
went. When we got to the edge of the woods on the other side, we found a 
wide ditch full of water in front of us. The stranger crossed the ditch by a 
small pole and shouted, "Come on, here are the Yankees, right here," pointing 
into the woods with his sword Some of the men plunged in and found it almost 
waist deep in mud and water. I was just about to plunge in when I heard some 



262 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

one say, "halt." We marched by the left flank down the ditch for some dis- 
tance ; then we were ordered to lie down. Immediately the hring commenced on 
the left. Sone one on the left said, "Don't fire, our men are in front of us." 
Glancing into the woods I saw the shadowy forms of men through the smoke 
and bushes. I then shouted, "Fire men, it is the Yankees," and leveled my gun 
and fired. Looking along the line I saw that most of the men were firing too 
high. I shouted "Shoot low," as loud as I could. There was no time now to 
think of anything but loading and firing. We had an excellent position behind 
the bank of the ditch, and as we were lying down, they could not hit us any- 
where but in the head and shoulders. I was in front of our Company, loading 
and firing on my knees, and could hear the balls cut through the bushes and 
whistle past my head. I suppose we fired for five minutes. I fired eight times 
and could have fired more if my gun had not got so dirty that it was very hard 
to load; it had gotten so hot that I could hardly hold it. The Colonel, now 
seeing that our men had given way on the left and the Yankees were about to 
flank us, ordered us to cease firing and fall back. I had not thought of being 
hit before, but now I began to fear being shot in the back, but I soon found 
that the Yankees had ceased firing almost entirely. If they could have fired on 
us as we passed the meadow, they might have ruined us, but they were too badly 
cut up. We fell back into the old field where we had first gone in and formed. 
As we came through the woods there was the Virginia Regiment still huddled 
behind the trees and old logs. The Yankees balls, which passed over us, struck 
among them and they fired back over our heads. As we came out they came 
out with us and formed a good distance behind us. We now learned for the 
first time that Colonel Connor had his leg broken in the fight. The way of it was 
this: Colonel Connor went down the ditch till he came to a bridge, here he met 
two men who asked him which regiment that was. He replied "22 N. C." 
They instantly fired at him and broke to run, one of the balls broke his leg. 
Our men now saw the Yankee line about 50 feet from them and fired. It was 
now after dark ; Colonel Gray told us to lie down on our arms and hold our posi- 
tion until morning. We had to send out pickets into the woods. This was one 
of the hardest things that I have had to do, to name the men who should go out, 
when I knew they were all worn out with fatigue. We were obliged to remain 
here until two o'clock, when we received orders from General Pender to join the 
rest of our Brigade, from which we had become separated that evening and 
which was still in front of Mechanicsville. We marched back about a mile 
before we reached our Brigade. We passed thousands of men on our way all 
lyinp on their arms, many of them sleeping their last sleep and dreaming then- 
last dream of Peace and home. We reached our regiment after three o'clock 
in the morning and threw ourselves down to sleep within a few hundred yards 
of the enemy. We were wet to our waists from lying in the water in the meadow, 
but we scarcely struck the ground before we were asleep. I had thrown off 
my blanket as we went into the battle and had none for a week or more. After 
a short rest, we were waked up the next morning before day. The condition 
of our regiment was extremely bad. This morning there not 100 men in the 
regiment, and another company was thrown in with our, and as neither com- 
pany had a commissioned officer, I had to take command of both companies. 
Our company numbered only 18 men and the company attached only 6. We 



JAMES OF VIKGINIA. 263 

were marched out and made to lie down behind the crest of a hilL The battle 
was renewed at daylight on the right and pretty soon the balls came whistling 
over our heads and we knew we were iu for another fight. 

I have taken up more space in writing this than I had any idea of when I 
began. I must stop this time for want of space. I know this letter must be 
tedious to you now. I will write a description of the other fights another time. 
You must answer this letter as soon as you get it. I have not received a letter 
from you since I left Yorktown. I got & letter from Becky and one from 
Uncle Jim a few days ago ; they were a long time coming. Major Bynum and 
Dr. Higgins were here last week. They staid with us for two or three days. 
From them we learnt the news from McDowell and all about the candi- 
dates. We are going to run W. F. Craig for the commons against Morris and 
he will beat him too. Morris is very unpopular in Camp. Our company and 
Neal's will go almost unanimously for Craig. Craig has been over to Black- 
wells and Lytle's companies, and I think he will beat Morris badly in both of 
them. I believe Craig is a far more suitable man than Morris. 

I sent you $28 by Major Bynum and spent the greater part of the money. I 
saw they were not going to pay us soon so I kept, and I needed it too, on the 
march. I will seDd you the rest of the $80 (which I consider I owe you), when 
we draw. "Write immediately and let me know how John is getting on. Do 
not let him come back until he is entirely well again. Steve has got well again 
and sends "howdy" to all. I answered John's letter; tell him to write to me. 

Your affectionate son, 

J. L. Greenlee. 

He died from fever as the following letter shows : 

Loudon County, Va., near Upperville, October 4, 1862. 

John Greenlee, Esq.. 

Dear Sir: I very much regret to have to communicate to you the sad tidings 
of your brother's death. Your brother Logan died at my house on five o'clock 
on Tuesday, Sept. 30th of typhoid fever and was buried on Thursday, Oct. 2nd, 
in the neighborhood cemetery near the village of Upperville. He was buried in 
a neat and respectable manner with a view to his remains being removed to his 
home, if his friends may desire to do so. He was attended in his last illness by 
Dr. Gunnell, one of the prominent and able doctors of the county, and received 
every attention both medical and otherwise needful for his relief and well 
being. His servant Stephen was faithful in his attention to him both night and 
day as one could be, and he (Stephen) can inform you what attentions he re- 
ceived from myself and family, as also Mr. Huntley, who came to my house the 
same day your brother came, and expects to accompany Stephen to the army. 

Your brother came to my house on Monday and expired on the next Tuesday 
week. He was at Upperville indisposed, at the time of the Yankee raid into this 
neighborhood, he left there and came to my house as a place of safety, about 
two miles, which caused a relapse, from which he sank rapidly until he died. 
Such are the melancholy facts and circumstances of your brother's death. 

Very respectfully your friend, 

William Fleming.

SAMUEL HABVEY GREENLEE was a self made man, having had neither 
the advantage of a good education, nor pecuniary means to give him a start in 
the world. When only a boy, he and his brother Ephraim carried their booka 
to the field when they went to work and employed every spare moment in 
study. In the evenings they studied by the light of the fire. By improving the 
leisure moments afforded him during his daily avocations, he succeeded in ob- 
taining a good education, and admission to the bar. He obtained a reputable 
standing in the legal profession. He held an enviable position among the most 
prominent citizens of Defiance, Ohio, and was an esteemed member of the Defi- 
ance County Bar. He was noted for his public spirit, his liberality, and hia 
unflinching devotion to his principles, which he deemed promotive to the public 
good. He was also distinguished for the exactitude of his business habits, and 
above all for the probity of his character. It has been the fortune of few men to 
have their word, in matters of business, more implicity confided in than his. In 
politics, he was a Whig; in religion, Presbyterian. 

MARGARET ANN GREENLEE began teaching school near her home at 
Ayersville, Ohio, when fourteen years of age, and afterward taught in the

THOMAS FRANKLIN GREENLEE emigrated with his parents to Ohio in 
1827, where they settled on a farm near Chillicothe, Ross County. His young 
days were spent in a log cabin, and he often hunted deer and wild turkeys, 
which were plentiful in those days. Being a diligent student, he was able to 
commence teaching at the age of seventeen. After his marriage he located at 
Bourneville, Ross County, Ohio, where he was a teacher in the public schools. 
He afterward accepted a better position in the schools of Bainbridge in the 
same county. In April, 1849 he removed to Hillsboro, where he was a success- 
ful teacher for ten years. In the spring of 1862 he moved onto a farm three 
miles west of Hillsboro, and engaged in farming until August, 1867. At that 
time there was some excitement about the Anneka Jans estate in New York 
City, and Mrs. Greenlee being a direct descendant, Mr. Greenlee was prevailed 
upon to go as a representative to look into the business and gather all the facts 
in the case, as well as to search the records in New Jersey and New York City. 
He was very persevering and succeeded in proving the heirship of over one 
hundred claimants. In politics, he was a Republican ; in religion, Presbyterian. 
His widow removed in 1874 to Villisca, Iowa. 

CHARLES ANDERSON GREENLEE was reared on a farm and attended 
public school. At the age of thirteen he removed with his mother to Villisca, 
Iowa, where he attended the high school for four years. At the age of nineteen 
he entered the employ of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad as brake- 
man. At the end of three years he resigned and traveled over a good part 
of the western states and territories for the purpose of gaining information 
about the railroad business. He was an enthusiast in his work and a faithful 
employee. For a time he located at Los Angeles, California, but, the climate 
not agreeing with him, he went to Denver, Colorado, where he secured a posi- 
tion as yard master with the Sante Fe Company. He was sent to Galveston, 



268 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

Texas for winter work, but spent the summers in Denver. While in Galveston 
he wa3 superintendent of the trains which took on the merchandise from the 
ships unloading in the harbor. He was a member of the Brotherhood of Bail- 
road Men, and of the Knights of Pythias. 

JAMES EDWARD GREENLEE attended school and worked on the farm 
until he reached the age of nineteen. He spent one year with his uncle, James 
Greenlee, near Geneseo, Illinois, then returned home and entered the employ 
of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad as brakeman. He was promoted to yard 
master and remained with the company for six years. After traveling over 
most of the United States he located at Price, Emery County, Utah, where he 
has been fairly successful.

JOHN WHITE GREENLEE lived in Lincoln County, Kentucky until about 
three or four years of age, when his mother — his father being dead — went west 
and settled in Platte County, Missouri. Some time afterward they located on 
a farm southeast of Warrensburg, being among the earliest settlers. He was 
educated at Elder George Johnson's Male School at Warrensburg. Before his 
education was completed the civil war broke out, and he enlisted April 15, 
1861 in the Confederate service, joining Company F, Gordon's Regiment, 
Shelby's Brigade. He was engaged in most of the important battles and cam 
paigns of Missouri, Arkansas, and other western states He received two severe 
wounds from which he recovered. He was commissioned Lieutenant, and after- 
ward Captain, in which capacity he acted for a long time. With his brave 
comrades he surrendered at Shreveport, Louisiana. On his return home he 
found nothing save his land, his house having been burned during the perilous 
strife. He replaced his home and lived there with his mother until her death. 
In 1887 he removed to the City of Warrensburg, and several years later in 
company with Mr. T. J. Caldwell, engaged in the lumber business. In 1S98 he 
was forced to retire from business on account of ill health, and his son Francis 
conducted the business until the dissolution of partnership in 1900. For many 
years he was a faithful worker in the First Baptist Church of Warrensburg 
and for a long time had charge of a Bible class, being especially devoted to the 
Sunday school. In politics he was a Democrat. His children were all educated 
at the State Normal School at Warrensburg. 

ELMO MURRAY GREENLEE graduated at the State Normal School at 
Warrensburg in July, 1893, and the following October he went to work on a 
ranch at Midland Texas, which was owned by his uncle, Francis Divers. He

stayed there until 1897, then decided to go to Mexico. He invested some money 
in Sonora and is now dealing in mines. He is a mining engineer and lives at

ROBERT HARLAN GREENLEE, after the death of his mother, was ap- 
prenticed to the proprietor of a newspaper in Stephens County, Texas, for 
whom he worked about two years, then ran away from him on account of 
mistreatment. 'For about three years he wandered about, working at his 
trade in Parker County, Texas, cooking in a raftman's camp on Little River, 
Arkansas, and line-riding on a large cattle ranch in the Panhandle of Texas. 
While at the latter employment a wild horse fell on him inflicting as was 
supposed fatal injuries. He was removed to the settlement and his father sum- 
moned to see him die; but contrary to predictions he was convalescent when 
his father reached him, and returned with him to Stephens County. He re- 
mained at home, attending school and working at his trade, until 1885, after 
which he visited and worked in all the important cities of the East and West, 
as journeyman printer and member of the International Typographical Union. 
After two years' absence he returned home for a short visit, then left for New 
Orleans, where he spent the winter. The next summer he visited Virginia and 
West Virginia. After spending some time there with relatives and friends, he 
returned to Texas and finished the preliminary course of reading law, and was 
admitted to the bar in Coleman County, Texas, March 14, 1889. The following 
May he was elected State's Attorney for Coke County, Texas, and served in 
that capacity until the fall of 1890. After his marriage he returned to Coke 
County with his bride, but had scarcely taken up the thread of business before 
she contracted typhoid fever and died in a few weeks. Immediately after 
her death he sold all his property, and, after paying his father a short visit, 
left for Galveston, thence via Malory R. R. to Key West, from there to Havana, 
thence via schooner to Rio Janeiro, Brazil. En route off Cape St. Roque the 
schooner came near foundering in a terrific gale. He did not remain long in 
Rio Janeiro, and returning to the United States followed his trade, working on 
the Times-Union of Jacksonville, Florida until the spring of 1893, when he re- 
turned to Texas and settled down to the practice of law in Alvin. In 1898. his 
health failing, he removed to the mountains of Arkansas, where he prospered 
greatly and is a leading member of the bar in his section of the state.

EDWARD THOMAS GREENLEE with his manly, chivalric ways and 
bright sayings, began to attract friends to himself very early in life. His fond- 
ness for all sorts of animals led to his making many strange and grotesque pets; 
and a study of their habits gave him perpetual amusement and delight. Any 
cruelty to them quickly aroused his championship, and this remained a promi- 
nent and winning characteristic throughout his life. To all that was beautiful 
in nature, the sensitive soul of the boy quickly responded. As boy or man the 
beauty of no wild flower escaped him, and during the later years of his life he 
was a most successful and enthusiastic gardener, dispelling thereby many busi- 
ness cares and worries. 

Full of bright hopes, noble resolves and lofty purposes, he left his old home 
for college life at the University in 1878, and in 1880 finished with honor the 
Scientific course. Here, too, he was converted and joined the Presbyterian 
church. After reading law for two years with W. W. Flemming of Charlotte, 
he obtained in 1882 license to plead at the bar, and returning to McDowell, 
opened a law office in Marion, where he practiced law quite successfully until a

few weeks before his death. During the pastorate of the Eev. E. C. Murray he 
was chosen Elder of the Marion Church and superintendent of the Sabbath 
schooL His interest and pleasure in this work were most earnest and sincere. 
With the New Year he had gone to Asheville, to find wider scope for his talent 
in the realm of law. His first case in the city courts had just been gained when 
the sudden illness came on which caused his death.

HENRY CLAY GREENLEE passed his first years at Defiance, Ohio, and 
from his eighth to fifteenth year, on a farm about five miles from Ayersville, 
Ohio, meanwhile attending school in the village. When fifteen he obtained his 
mother's consent to accompany her cousin to St. Paul, Minnesota, doing what- 
ever he could find to do until he secured a position with a dealer in furs. He 
remained in this position until he was seventeen years of age, when he enlisted 
on July 28, 1862 in Company A, 6th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry, first to be 
sent to quell the Indian outbreak, and later sent with his regiment to the south 
to assist in quelling the rebellion. He saw much active service, and was mus- 
tered out at Fort Snelling, Minnesota, August 19, 1865. He was fond of study 
and carried books with him all his army life, improving every opportunity. 
After his discharge from the army he visited his mother and sister in Ohio, and 
attended school there for a time, then returned to St. Paul and engaged in the 
fur business. He was considered the best judge of fur in the city. He made 
many trips to the northern and western parts of the state to purchase fur, often 
with large sums of money on his person, and when beyond the pale of civiliza- 
tion would lie down at night with none but Indians for company, and without 
fear of molestation. Upon being asked if he were not afraid, he answered, "I 
feel safer with them than with white perosns. The Indians would die for me." 
He learned to speak their language, which pleased them very much. "When 
they came down to St. Paul in the spring to dispose of their winter's work in 
hunting and trapping, they would deposit their money with him, considering it 
safer than in a bank. He vas a Republican; Baptist. His widow and daughter 
reside at St. PauL 

HENRY CLAY GREENLEE, JR., enlisted June 11, 1S98 at St. Paul, as 
recruit in Company D, 13th Regiment Minnesota Volunteers, for service in the 
Spanish-American war. He was at Camp Merritt from June 20 until July 29, 
1898, when he sailed on the steamer "St. Paul" from San Francisco, and ar- 
rived at Manila. Philippine Islands, August 31, 1S98. He was a dental student 
at the time of his enlistment.

FRANCIS PEARCE GREENLEE was educated in the public schools and 
academy of Hillsboro, graduating from the latter in 1866. He taught school in 
Hillsboro for three years, then went to Indianapolis, where he read law with 
his uncle, Ephraim A. Greenlee, and was admitted to the bar in the spring of 
1872. The same year he went to Villisca, Montgomery Co., Iowa, where he 
taught school for one year, and at the end of that time was admitted to the bar 
in that state and began the practice of law at Villisca. He represented Mont- 
gomery County in the twenty-first General Assembly, and was prominent in 
much of the legislation of that session. Being a member of the Judiciary Com- 
mittee, he took a leading part in the reorganization and putting into successful 
operation the present judical system of the state, and permanently locating the 
supreme court at the state capital. He was a member of several of the most 
important committees, being chairman of two. One of the most able and 
effective debaters upon the floor, he was recognized as one of the leaders of the 
House. He was not a candidate for re-elcetion. 

Mr. Greenlee was closely identified with the growth and development of the 
city of Villisca and that part of the country; and, being imbued with the public 
spirit commendable in all men, he took an active part in all public questions, and 
upheld those which to him appeared to be for the best interest of the whole 
people. He was three times elected mayor of Villisca. His last term expired in 
April, 1898, when he declined re-election, but was retained as solicitor by the 
city. Taking charge of the city with a depleted treasury, he so managed the 
finances that, without increasing taxation, he paid off the city bonds as they 
matured and the cost of all needed improvements and extensions, and retired 
at the close of his last official term with the endorsement and good will of the 
people, and a large cash balance in the treasury. In 1898 he removed to Red 
Oak to enter upon the discharge of his duties as County Attorney, to which 
office he had been elected that fall. By his careful and painstaking methods 
with all business entrusted to him, and strict fidelity to his clients, he has won 
the confidence and esteem of the people. He is an able lawyer and successful 
practitioner, filling the office of County Attorney with marked ability to the 
entire satisfaction of his fellow citizens. *-• ^ $ 

Mr. Greenlee is a teacher in the Presbyterian Sunday school, and has been 
prominent in that work for years. He is a member of the orders of Odd Fellows, 
Knights of Pythias and Masons,

father agreed to accompany him to Texas, since he was determined to try a new 
country. In 1875 they went to Denison, Texas, where for three years they raised 
cotton and made a good living, but saved little. He then determined to try 
something else, so engaged in cattle raising in Young County, Texas. In a few 
years he had gathered a large amount of experience, whole some one else got 
the herd. He then began the life of a cowboy, which he followed pretty reg- 
ularly in Texas and Indian Territory until the spring of 1887. In the fall of 
that year he located at Walsenburg, Colorado. After his wife's death he 
wandered back to Texas and again took up the life of a cow-boy, and during 
five years employment as such he accumulated quite a number of cattle, and 
kept his herd three years longer in Young County, then in order to secure 
better range for his stock he removed to King County, Texas, where he now 
owns a ranch of four thousand acres stocked with a good herd of improved 
cattle. In politics, he is a Democrat; in religion, Christian ; resides at Benjamin, 
Knox County, Texas.

WILLIAM GREENLEE removed from Susquehanna County to Woodcock- 
boro, Pennsylvania, in 1796. He removed from Pennsylvania to Ohio about 
1810 and located a farm of 160 acres on the south side of the Big Mohican 
River in Wayne (now Ashland) County. He exchanged his farm for the S. W. 
Quarter of Section 14, Range 15, Township 20, Wayne County, (now known as 
Lake Township, Ashland County), three miles further along the same river. 
He returned to Pennsylvania and arranged for moving his family to Ohio. 
October 22, 1811, he commenced his journey through the forest with one two- 
horse and one four-horse covered wagon, loaded with household goods, provis- 
ions, grain, and his family. He crossed the Ohio river and followed the trail 
through Canton, Massillon, and Wooster — then all mere villages. There were 
but few cabins along the trail and he was compelled to camp by the wayside 
nearly the entire distance. When he arrived at the village of Wooster he found 
no open path to the cabin of James L. Priest, who had been a neighbor in 
Crawford County, Pennsylvania and had located in 1809 near what is now 
known as Priests' Prairie, so he preceded his teams with an ax, cutting the 
undergrowth and preparing a wagon road. In this way his progress was slow

and it took nearly a month to perform the journey. Arrived safely at his des- 
tination, his old neighbor and several Indians assisted hi™ in putting up a 
cabin. As he was of mild and religious nature he fared well with the Indians, 
and he often said that he had never had anything stolen by them. As deer 
and wild geese were plentiful, they would often hunt together and were fast 
friends. For a long time there were but five families in this vicinity. The 
cabins were near the old Huron trail, and great numbers of Delawares passed 
on their way to and from the old Indian settlement on the Tuscarawas, during 
the fall of 1811 and the spring of 1812, but all kept quiet and friendly until 
after Hull's surrender at Detroit. This was followed by the removal of the 
Green and Jerometown Delawares, and the assasination of Ruffner, the Zim- 
mers and James Capus by the hostile Indians from Sandusky. The pioneers in 
the Priest neighborhood converted Mr. Priest's double cabin into a block house 
and enclosed with pickets about one-fourth of an acre of ground around it. 
The settlers near Odells Lake joined those of the Priest settlement in the erec- 
tion of the stockade and came there for safety. They remained in the fort 
but a short time, though the fort remained the headquarters of the little 
colony during the continuance of the war. 

About the first stranger who came to the lone cabin was Johnny Appleseed.* 
as he was called. He planted an orchard for Mr. Greenlee, some of the trees 
of which are still bearing. Mr. Greenlee cleared some land for farming, and 
later built a flour mill, which was the first one in that section of the country. 
Previously they had to go into Knox County — a distance of thirty miles — 
for their flour. A part of this old mill is still standing. In a short time his 
troubles began, and he lost his wife and several children, all being buried in 
the orchard. Some years later he sold his farm and mill and purchased the 
homestead which, at his decease, came into the possession of his son John.

JOHN MEREDITH TAYLOR DUNN insisted on taking his father's place 
when the militia was called out in the war of 1812. He was a great reader, 
and interested in having good schools. Through him his district was the first 
in that part of the country to introduce the study of Philosophy and Physiology. 
He was also a strong temperance man, and drew up and circulated the first 
pledge in the county. He raised the first building that was raised anywhere 
in the vicinity without whiskey, but it took the second lot of men to start it. 
The building was raised the second day without accident or quarrel, while at 
the next two men fought and another man had his leg broken. After this the 
next one adopted Mr. Dunn's plan and had no trouble, so that ended whiskey 
for such occasions. He was a farmer; Republican; United Presbyterian; re- 
sided at McKean, Pennsylvania.

his graduation he entered the employ of George C. Anderson, at Schamburg, 



322 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

Venango County, Pennsylvania, at that time one of the foremost oil operators 
in the state. In the service of Mr. Anderson he learned much about the oil 
operations, and in 1873 he became associated with others in operations in 
several of the most important oil districts of the state. He went to Butler 
County in 1883, and has since developed a business that gives him rank among 
the largest producers in the country. Success in most instances claimed him 
for its own; but this was no doubt largely due to his pluck, industry, per- 
severance, and excellent business qualifications. The firm of Greenlee and 
Forst, organized in 1891, of which he is senior member, have been large opera- 
tors in this field, and still have a number of productive wells in the district 
known as Glad Run and Renfrew. They have also operations in "Washington 
County, Pennsylvania, where a number of fine wells are now producing. Mr. 
Greenlee organized the United States Oil Company, composed principally of 
Boston capitalists, which has very large interests in Marion, "Wood, and Wetzel 
counties, West Virginia, where they operate on a very large scale, having had 
as many as three hundred wells at one time in which they were interested. Mr. 
Greenlee is Vice-President and General Manager of this company. He is also 
a director of the Alliquippa Steel Works located at Alliquippa, Beaver County, 
Pennsylvania. He is also connected with the Trade Dollar Mining Company of 
Idaho, whose mines are considered among the best paying ones in the state; 
and with the Pure Oil Company of Oil City, Pennsylvania. Mr. Greenlee has 
offices in Pittsburg; but he is devoted to his family and all his spare time is 
spent at his beautiful home, located on one of the finest residence streets of 
Bntler. 

MRS. GREENLEE is one of the most active workers in the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, and is also active and influential in the cause of temperance, 
and in all other causes having for their object the betterment of the world.

JAMES OP PENNSYLVANIA. 323 

PETER PATTERSON GREENLEE and his brother James went from 
Pennsylvania to Iowa in the fall of 1855 and entered government land in Tama 
County. Mary Jane Guiler went to Iowa the following year, and after their 
marriage they went to their little cabin home on the prairie where Traer now 
stands. They cheerfully bore the trials and hardships of a frontier life together 
until 1863, when in answer to his country's call, he enlisted in the Ninth Iowa 
Cavalry. The day after his eldest child, Margaret, was buried, he bade goodby 
to his wife and remaining children, and went with his company to guard the 
railroad running into Little Rock, Arkansas. In September, 1864, he was given 
a furlough and went home, where he died six weeks later. He was a Republi- 
can; Presbyterian; resided at Toledo, Iowa. 

MARY EMMELLXE GREENLEE graduated with high honors in the classi- 
cal course at Western College, Toledo, in 1888. She was gifted as a speaker 
and writer. Her graduating oration was said to have surpassed anything that 
had ever been delivered in the history of the college ; but the hopes of her 
friends were never realized, she having died the year following her graduation.

JAMES OP PENNSYLVANIA. 329 

ROBERT GREENLEE obtained his early education at the little country 
school located near Woodcock, Pennsylvania. His father operated a saw mill 
and shipped the lumber down French Creek to Franklin, thence into the Alle- 
gheny river to Pittsburg, and Robert 's early life was spent as a creek and river 
pilot for his father. In 1855 he determined to try his fortune in the west and 
lived in southern Illinois for six months, then located at Bloomington, where he 
commenced the building and contracting business in which he continued until 
his death. The first sixteen years he was in partnership with Mr. H. A. Miner, 
but after that carried on the business alone. He had little to start with, hav- 
ing but one hundred dollars and a few articles which his wife brought from 
her home to commence housekeeping, but with energy and good business quali- 
ties, he soon became prosperous and one of the leading contractors and build- 
ers in the city. Some of the finest residences and public buildings were erected 
by him, among them the Court House and McKean County Jail. In 1887 he 
went to California, being attracted by the building boom there at that time, 
and remained eighteen months. His last contract, on which he was engaged at 
the time of his death, was the building of the Methodist Episcopal Church at 
Shirley, niinois. He was a plain man, but one of those kindly and pleasant 
persons whom everybody liked. In politics, he was a Republican; in religion, 
Presbyterian.

THOMAS JEFFERSON GREENLEE went to Central America. After h* 
had been there about two years, and making good money, he sent for his young- 
est brother, Virgd, to come thinking they could soon make a fortune. Virgil 
went in the fall of 1893, and the following June died a victim of yellow fever. 
This was such a blow to the elder brother that he sold out and started back to 
North America. The ship in which he took passage was wrecked, and he, 
with many others, was drowned.

THOMAS JEFFERSON GREENLEE was studying medicine, but when 
the Civil War broke out he was among the first to follow the fortunes, or mis-" 
fortunes, of the South. He was taken prisoner when Price surrendered at 
Little Roek, and was kept there in prison all winter, being in wretched health. 
Rather than have him go north as a prisoner, his wife persuaded him to take 
the oath and come out. He was a lieutenant in the Confederate army.

ALEXANDER HAMILTON GREENLEE attended the high school of Rut- 
ledge until the breaking out of the civil war, when all schools were suspended. 
The Rebellion authorities were forcing Union men to enlist in the Rebel army, 
and he made an attempt to cross the mountains and join the Federal army, 
but was captured and held as a prisoner at Madison, Georgia. He was released 
and returned home, but had to leave or join the Rebellion, so he made another 
attempt to cross the mountains and succeeded in reaching London, Kentucky, 
where he enlisted in the Federal army in Company G, second Tennessee Cavalry, 
Army of the Cumberland, and served for nearly three years. On July 6, 
1865 he was mustered out at Nashville, Tennessee, after having been en- 
gaged in many battles, and receiving a wound in the battle of Stone River, 
Tennessee. He returned to his old home and continued to reside there for 
some years after his marriage, then purchased a farm near Tampico, and 
has since been engaged in farming and carpenter work. In politics, he is a 
Republican; in religion, Baptist.

greatly desired to return to Carson and Newman College for her senior year, 
as her grandfather Greenlee was one of the founders of that institution, and 
her immediate family had all been educated there, but she was offered induce-

Tennessee, of which her cousin, Dr. W. M. Greenlee was vice-president. In

March, 1896, Mr. "Watson accepted a call to the pastorate of the church in Bour- 
bon, Missouri, where they spent about two years doing missionary work among

itself, he resigned the care of the church and in October entered the seminary. 
In September, 1899 he was sent to Corbin, Kentucky by the Home and State

and active career had command of many steamers, among them the "Union," 
"Messenger" and "South America," He was an accomplished officer, and held 
in high esteem by all who knew him, for hi3 genial disposition and honorable, 
upright dealing. On the day of his funeral, all the passenger steamers and

manded — had their flags at half-mast as a mark of respect to his memory.

have them help her, telling them that if she needed assistance she would ask 
for it; but she was able to bring up her children and keep them neatly and 
comfortably clothed without assistance. She was proud, quick witted and very 
self reliant. When she attempted anything she would allow nothing to inter- 
fere with its acomplishment. In 1898 she left Allegheny City, Pennsylvania 
and went to St. Cloud, Minnesota, where she made her home with her daughter, 
Mrs. Campbell, until her death.

ROBERT OP PENNSYLVANIA. 391 

THOMAS WALLACE GREENLEE was reared in Allegheny Co., Pennsyl- 
vania, and attended the common schools and an academy in that county. He 
went on the river when quite young and has followed it most of his business 
life. He was well and favorably known along the Ohio and Mississippi rivers 
as one of the oldest and most trusted and honored captains and skillful pilots. 
He followed steamboating up to about five years before his death, the infirmities 
of old age compelling him to give it up and pass his declining years in the re- 
tirement of his home. During the last twenty-five years of his steamboating 
life he was in the employ of Gray's Iron Line, and possessed the confidence and 
highest esteem of the firm. Possessed of a kind and genial nature, he made 
many friends, and visitors to his home in his declining years would leave im- 
pressed with having been greeted and honored by that olden time courtesy and 
hospitality so seldom met with in these modern times. He was a Republican; 
Presbyterian; removed in 1851 to Vanport, Pennsylvania where he owned a 
splendid residence property. 

SUSANNA (ONSTOTT) GREENLEE after the death of her husband, made 
her home with her daughter, Mrs. J. P. Ross, and her granddaughter, Mrs. 
W. J. East. She was a devout Christian, a consistent member of the Presby- 
terian church at Vanport since its erection, having at that time withdrawn her 
card of membership from the church at Bridgewater. Her whole life was a 
beacon light guiding those about her to a higher and better life. The love and 
esteem in which she was held was attested by the lar^e gathering of neighbors, 
friends and relatives who came from far and near. The services were in charge 
of Rev. T. P. Potts, of the Vanport Presbyterian church, pastor of the de- 
ceased, and were in keeping with her life and character. Assisting him were 
Rev. B. F. Doyle, D. D., of Salem, and Rev. John F. Dravo of Beaver. The 
interment took place in Beaver cemetery. The pallbearers were the grandsons 
of the deceased : Alvin L. Large and Charles Large, of Allegheny, W. H. Ste- 
venson, of Pittsburg, Albert McMullen, of Allegheny, Stewart Fowler and W. J. 
East of Vanport. 

ROBERT "WALLACE GREENLEE and William .Merchant Greenlee were 
employed by Grays Iron Line three years and were together with his father 
on the same steamer, Robert had a cousin Charles who was a popular clerk 
at one time on the boats running from Pittsburg to St. Louis.
